Dolores Badeaux Roussel, a native of Garyville and longtime resident of Dutchtown, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Monday, February 11, 2019.
Her 90 years were a rich combination of family, work and service.
She was a devoted wife, a compassionate mother and a steadfast daughter and sister.
Her abundant generosity extended far beyond her immediate and extended families to every human soul who crossed her path or entered her home.
After her retirement from Stebbins Lumber and Supply Company (30 years) as a bookkeeper, she began a second career at WYMAR Federal Credit Union (39 years) from which she retired at the age of 85.
She also devoted her time and gifts in service of her church community. She was a faithful parishioner and the volunteer office administrator of St. John Catholic Church for many years.
She was a member of the Lady’s Altar Society, the St. John Mission Ministry, the RCIA program, prison ministry and others touching all aspects of parish life.
Dolores is survived by her sisters Mary Badeaux Roussel, Nelwyn Badeaux Mancuso and Carolyn Badeaux Rome; son Lewis Roussel, Jr. (Monica); daughters Rhonda McGrew, Tina Sergent (Jeff), Lisa LeBouef (Willie); 10 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Lewis E. Roussel, Sr.; parents, Nolan J. Badeaux and Mabel Duhon Badeaux; siblings, Nolan Badeaux, Jr., Alden Badeaux, Ray Badeaux, Fay Badeaux Kilburn and son-in-law, Leon McGrew.
